    Yellow Hills

    Alright, I've decided to continue working on this doodle and make it a W.I.P. I'm still trying to get used to doing that, because I'm always a little afraid I may not get back into the mood to continue on little experiments such as this. It's kind of like getting scared to get locked in somehow. Anyway... overcoming this I shall start my third W.I.P.

    Yellow Hills...

    In this first quicky I practiced a bit of Insta-dry OFF type of painting and smudging. It's definitely hard to control over large areas, but works beautifully on smaller details, like the double hill in the mid-right background, for example.



    After a long break and some TV I thought about this painting again and decided to continue a bit. Somehow a large big crack through the middle felt like a curious choice. It is somewhat of a cheat in terms of subject, because it's really nothing specific, but it felt as though it had it's own character. Besides the experimental aspect of it, thinking about the bouncing light inside of that large canyon type crack, increasing saturation for the bounces into darker areas and so forth...

    A smaller update... correcting a drop shadow in midground and adding more haze to the crack in the background.

    Thanx, Jack!

    Here's a sci-fi version I was just in the mood for. I may get rid of it again, but it was just a thing I thought of and couldn't resist making. It's totally freehand, so perspective is arbitrary and proportions and such... ...doodling with oil paint!

    What I mean by freehand is, that I didn't make a construction or pencil sketch for it in advance, which normally would probably be a better idea. Crookedness always comes across funny, but well... testing ideas quickly is sometimes more fun.

    Yowza! A doodle, he says!
    That's really cool. I like the slick surface of the skin of the robot, as well as the indirect bluish lighting from the rocket on his back.
    Yummy stuff. You really make me drool over the quality of the work you produce with ArtRage!

    Hehehe, thanx a lot! Man, easy to see how much I dig AR. And I still have so much left to learn of the software alone. It is you who's sending me on this ride and I can't stop having such a ball with it. I'm deeply grateful! And for everyone's wonderful feedback!
